It’s been almost a year and a half since the earthquake. Streets are still covered in rubble. Hundreds of thousands of people are still living in tent camps. Cholera is still taking lives. Hurricanes and floods make it even harder for the Haitians to stay safe and healthy.
But there is a lot of amazing work going on! The cholera center is saving a lot of lives. Meanwhile, APJ is putting a lot of work in building and expanding the Academy for Peace and Justice, the only free secondary school providing the children of the slums of Port-au-Prince with the education they need to serve their country. You can follow the progress via the APJ Tumblr.
Don’t want to sit still and just watch them do it all? Me neither! Here’s how you can help make a difference for the new generation in Haiti!
Art is a great opportunity to support Haiti. It is something that speaks to people of all languages, conveys messages that words can’t express and inspires people. That’s why I chose to use my art to raise money for Haiti by donating all proceeds to APJ.
There will be a new round of artwork added to (HE)ART FOR HAITI soon, including more portrait drawings, but also collages and digital art. As always, you will be able to purchase prints as well as original art. Any specific requests or suggestions? Bring them in!
And if you have any artwork that you’d like to see available through (HE)ART FOR HAITI to benefit Haiti through APJ, let me know (the more, the merrier)! You can reach me here or at artforhaiti [at] gmail.com.
